Calf died

Postby vincitygialam » Fri Sep 28, 2018 5:05 am

How long does the mother produce milk after her calf has died? We had one die on Valentine’s Day and that mother is still poking for her calf. How hard would it be to graft on another calf and would it be possible to do that now that it has been a week?

You must mean Labor day? Yes. You could graft on a calf if it has only been a week.

If her calf died on Valentine's Day she should be just about ready to have another one.

It would be a preemie, if that's the case. Valentine's day was only 7 months ago. ;-)

:nod: :nod: Good point! :) I hadn't thought of that.

So, Rafter S, she could very well be, just about ready to calve. :)
